Robbie does Lure Coursing!

For the dogs that live with us, we try to get them involved in things they enjoy, and do things that help enrich their life, beyond the basics of love, care and attention.  Welsh Terriers love to chase things, and are fast!  They truly enjoy this and you see it every day, whether this is fetching a ball, running in a yard, or playing ‘chase-me’ around the coffee table.  There are now official events that are built on the foundation of traditional sight-hound lure coursing, but are available for any breed.  These events are now so popular that it can be difficult to get into a local event now.  Both the CKC and AKC offer events.

Robbie has participated in all of these events, and has multiple titles.

  • Sprinter; Canada’s timed 100-meter dash;
  • Chase Ability; Canada’s 600 meter run (300 meters for small dogs);
  • FastCAT; AKC’s (US) timed 100-yard dash;
  • Coursing Ability; AKC’s (US) 600-yard run

In Canada, Robbie ran 37 km/hour in the Sprinter event!  That is 9.8 seconds to do the 100 meter dash!

It might only be a plastic bag that these guys are chasing in these events, but they are crazy fast when their prey drive kicks in.

Robbie has Scent Detection Titles!

Robbie is one of Canada’s first CKC Scent Detection Titled Welsh Terriers.  He and his daughter, Chloe, obtained their SDN titles in July 2021.

I first discovered Nose Work Training when Robbie was less than a year old.  At that time, I trained both him and Morgana.  Since then, I have trained a number of our Welsh Terriers in this sport, and encouraged a number of our companion (and show) owners, to try this.  This is definitely something that Welsh Terriers excel at, and they prove time and again, to love problem solving using their scenting abilities.

At age 4.5 years of age, I continue to go to some “Continuing Odor” classes with Robbie, to increase his skills (and mine).  It’s an enjoyable activity, that is focused on what the dogs get significant pleasure in doing.

My trainer, Brenda Cox, is NACSW certified and competes at the Elite level with multiple dogs of her own.
